Hotels in Kilgore, TX
As you map out your Texas visit, head for the eastern Piney Woods region and check out Kilgore. Best accessed from I-20, Kilgore is just west of Longview and a scenic drive north from Henderson. In 1930, this quiet farming town was thrust into the world limelight by discovery of a huge oil field. In just ten short days, the town's population exploded as more than 10,000 fortune seekers swarmed Kilgore from all over the world.
Today Kilgore is a city blending a rich oil heritage with a technologically advanced business community that provides residents with a great quality of life. A temperate climate with an annual rainfall of 45 inches allows people to enjoy outdoor recreational activities almost all year round. Numerous lakes within an hour's drive of town provide excellent water recreation and some of the best bass fishing in the Southwest.
